    hooking up an amp to my coaxs.......

    bout to get a 2 channel amp from a friend and want to know if what im bout to do is right. (better safe then sorry)

    no particular order:

    RCAs from HU to amp
    power wire from battery to amp
    Gound amp to car chassis
    REM from HU to amp
    Speaker wire from amp to coaxs (tape off speaker wire in car door since im not running them off HU)

    if i forgot anything LMK
    BTW, I already have a BX1000D hooked up, is there anything special i might need since im going to have a 2 amp setup? Also, do I just connect both rems from each amp and connect them to the HU?


    THANKS

    Fuse on your power wire at the battery.

    that will work for connecting the REM wire too.




    my latest completed project. My new work in progress, (62 leds in the roof) check out my cardomain site at http://www.cardomain.com/id/jrz126 (page 2)

    you might consider only running one power line and then using a fused distro at the amps to split it to the two.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    why would you need a fused distrobution box rather than a regular distrobution box?

    Because your power wire will be larger than the wire going into the amps, right? Any time you change wire size, you need to fuse.
